SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – City of Sacramento crews were spread out Friday, looking for people wasting water.
Residents watering their lawns faced getting a notice of violation, being that it was one of the city’s “no watering” days.
Crews will take a picture of the alleged violation, then knock on the door of the home to give out the citation. The first notice is only a warning. However, subsequent violations will garner fines from $50 up to $1,000 for repeated infractions.
Crews CBS13 spoke to Friday said they will help residents set their water times, as well as dispense water saving tips.
Residents within the City of Sacramento can only water on certain days: Tuesday or Saturday for odd numbered addresses and Wednesday or Sunday for even numbered addresses. Even on watering days, residents have to water before 10 a.m. or after 7 p.m.
No watering is allowed on Mondays, Thursdays or Fridays.
Inspectors targeted the Pocket, South Land Park, Downtown, East Sac, Tahoe Park and Natomas areas in Friday’s sweep.
